MLA's Week, April 7 -11, 2014

A snapshot of some of the talking points from North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice, during this week's proceedings of the Legislature.

The second week of April was another quiet one when it came to appearances from the North Coast MLA in the House or Committee rooms in Victoria.

Through the thirteen sessions of the Legislature in House or Committee work listed for the week of April 7-11, MLA Rice appears in the index for the Legislature week session just once.

A Wednesday appearance, where Ms. Rice makes mention of the presence in the Legislature Gallery of members of the delegation from Lax Kw'alaams and Metlaktla.

Other than that short greeting, she spoke to no other topics during the four days of Legislature sessions of this week.

As for committee work, MLA Rice is a member of the Standing Committee on Children and Youth, that Committee however did not meet during the past week.

Issues of interest to the North Coast were reviewed in Victoria this week, with both the MLA's of Skeena and Stikine taking up some of the topics of interest to the region. Some of our items of note from the week in Victoria can be found below:

Austin presses Natural Gas Minister Coleman for details on tax issues and other key items for Northwest
Nathan Cullen puts his support behind John HOrgan for BC NDP Leadership
North Coast First Nations sign agreement with Province on LNG

The Legislature now takes a two week break, resuming its work on April 28th at 10 AM.
